Company says it is investigating as transactions fail across UK and Europe
A range of companies have issued statements saying they are having problems with payments:
This seems to be affecting different customers cards in different ways but we are not experiencing significant issues currently.
We encourage passengers to use cash to buy tickets at ticket offices or the machines before they travel. We are taking steps to make ticket buying as easy as possible for passengers at this time.
Customers using contactless payment cards should be able to carry on using our Tube, bus and rail services as normal. We are monitoring the situation in close collaboration with our payments providers.
